Ms. Stein from Thermal CA is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a snack to take home because they are very hungry, and sometimes they do not get dinner.
The school is made up of five hundred and forty students that are mostly from economically disadvantaged families who speak Spanish as their first language. The children are learning English at school. Almost all of the students start school for the first time without experiencing any preschool, which puts them at an academic disadvantage. The school does not have a lot of family involvement that is needed in order to support children's academic learning at school. My students need all of the support that they can get in order to succeed in school.
The students in my class are all from low-income families that are struggling to meet their basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing.
The students all qualify for free lunch and uniforms. The students live in a very small community; most live in trailers and do not have air conditioning to keep cool in the hot weather. The families are struggling to keep their jobs and many are migrant farm workers.
Many of my students come to school hungry every day and ask me for food, especially at the end of the month. The students are sometimes late and miss breakfast, so it is necessary that I have some snacks that I can give my students to eat so that they can concentrate on their school work and not worry about when they will eat next. I can also use the snacks to give them something to take home to sustain them until they get to eat again. Eating is a basic and primary need in order to maintain their health and wellbeing.
